The stick, called añepa, is a symbol of power of the old Guanches. The bowls symbolize that Adeje was the capital of one of the most important mini-kingdoms, called "menceyatos" in prehispanic times. The tower is an image of the Casa Fuerte, the residence of the Lords of Adeje, who gained the title of marquess, which is also reflected by the coronet. The image on the base is symbolizing the importance of touristic activities at the shores of the municipality.
